appleman, whose creativity spans a long life filled with verse, fiction, philosophy, science, religion, and above all, moments of every day experience captured like the glint of the sun sparkling through a crystal glass. just take a look at a sample of his legacy -- "darwin," "apes and angeles," "darwin's ark," "in the twelfth year of the war," "open doorways," and this, my favorite -- "summer love and surf," about the joys and wonders of loving and living. his latest book of poems is "perfidious proverbs." a fellow poet said that to watch philip appleman "sling words is to be richly regaled." i quite agree. welcome, philip. >> wonderful to be here, bill. >> i have long thought of poetry as music to be heard best in the voice of the composer. so let's go right to some of your poems. >> good. i love it. >> here's one of my favorites. and i think it's one of your favorites, too.

by a great national creed. not by ethnicity, not by blood, not by religion. our national creed is an aspirational narratives that it does not matter where you came from, it matters where you are going. you can do great things. the only way that is true is if you have access to a high quality education. if it ever becomes the case as it is increasingly now, i can look a year is a code and tell whether you are going to get a good education, then the social fabric of this country has no chance to hold together. we will be put one against the other, those of our people and those who are not. kosor employable and those who are not. i can assure you that the sense that you might not be able to control your circumstances at birth but you can control your response to your circumstances. that will no longer be the way that americans think about themselves or about it other. that gives way to end the -- wauy to envy and entitlement. at the core, the real problem for us in national security is not the competitiveness abroad or institutions of national security but this great national narr
